Green GT's fuel-cell racer will take part in the 2012 Le Mans endurance race and produces 402bhp

The Automobile Club de L'Ouest (ACO) has invited GreenGT to race its GreenGT LMP H2 in next year’s Le Mans 24 Hour endurance race.

Hydrogen fuel cells produce electricity to power an electric motor with 134bhp, although the power will be increased to 402bhp in 2012 when the racer begins competing.

The car will hold 12kg of hydrogen in 700 bar high-pressure tanks. “When it feeds a fuel cell, it combines with the ambient oxygen to produce electricity and only steam is released to the atmosphere. Thus racing with hydrogen can be fully carbon neutral,” Green GT said.

“The unique and patented GreenGT drive train, which is capable of torque vectoring, will see a Le Mans evolution from a technical standpoint,” the firm added.
